Abstract

Let M be a compact oriented PL manifold and let CM be its PL chain complex. The domain of the chain-level intersection pairing is a subcomplex of CM CM. We prove that the inclusion map from this subcomplex to CM CM is a quasi-isomorphism. An analogous result is true for the domain of the iterated intersection pairing. Using this, we show that the intersection pairing gives CM a structure of partially defined commutative DGA, which in particular implies that CM is canonically quasi-isomorphic to an E chain algebra.
